Put togeather a 600 Logo with a 6S setup and fly. Not real snappy, easy to repair, good flight time. Great flier, and later you can go to 12s and rip it up!

Both would be much more solid than a 450. I would recommend the 550 based on the one battery alone. Two batteries mean higher initial cost, better charger required, longer charge times ect. The 600's have more brute power, but the 550 has plenty for most.

I have a 3D heli, I don't understand why it doesn't do 3D

I think Wrongler has a great suggestion. Buy the 600 on 6s with 550s and upgrade later

Excellent selection of choice! I started with Align 500 than 450 and was having so much equipment & component problems (on Trex 500) I started looking elsewhere. Oddly the 450 was a real work horse. I plan to always have it around to fly in a small park when i don't want to drive to the flying fields. I really like the way the Trex 500 fly, the lift, visibility (even on gray cloudy days),forgiveness (compared to 450). Looking around I found the Mikado Logo and I've been nothing but happy! going from 450 to Logo 550 would be huge. Will give you a lot of "air time". Hitting the 500+ blade size will you more time to react b/c the bird don't just drop like a rock. When I went to from Trex 450 to Trex 500 to Logo 500 with 560mm blades.... I felt the Logo 500 with 560mm was slow. So for a Logo 600, Might be slow (unless you like it). A Logo 500 with 500mm would be great. You can try both blade sizes but to answer your question: 550SX would be the ticket. I actually have both Logo 500 & 600. Great for somebody making the transition on a budget. Plus ... if you plan on getting a Goblin 700 or 700 size heli .. you can share batteries. I can't share the batteries with my Logo 600 (running 10S for now) and i find myself flying the Logo 500 4 X's more than my Logo 600.
But if you like it nice & slow, willing to invest in a better esc, charger & batteries with room to grow, than 600. But i personally wouldn't run Logo 600 on 6S unless you're willing to fork out the bucks to buy packs with 120C. Swinging big 600mm blades will suck your packs dry & puff them up. That's why I have both. I Like to have single pack heli's to fly around to practice new maneuvers and take up the Logo 600 on last flight for kicks & all out flying once I'm warmed up. So start off with Logo 550SX, they're awesome, flies great, well engineered, low maintenance, keeps on ticking ...like the energizer bunnie! Only you can mess it up.

I would go with a single pack setup like the Logo 550SX or Logo 600 3D/SX using 550 blades. They will give you the less than hyperactive flight you seek but still very capable for 3D. I also agree with Wrongler's advice. Get the Logo 600 (either 3D or SX) and use 550 blades on a single 6S, 5000mAH pack to learn on. Then upgrade to the 600+ blades with 12S once you get more experience.
